What You Can Get Me For Christmas

With Christmas approaching I thought it only fair to enlighten you with my Christmas wish list. As a single "career" woman on a seriously limited income I am constantly torn between asking for the completely practical things that I need, and just can't afford, and the things that I want, but cannot justify into purchasing when there are so many things on my "needs" list.

The Practical List

1. Shoe rack. I live in an ancient tiny Arlington apartment with absolutely primitive closet space. My shoes are taking over the place and are in desperate need of their own housing now. A good example of what go get me can be found
here .

2. Oil Change Gift Card. Seriously, how much more practical can a girl get? I have a car. It needs oil.

3. To put tires on my car is close to $400. That would put me in the poorhouse!
Tires .

Pink Coat You don't want me to freeze do you?

5. Dishes. My roommate's cat has an amazing knack for breaking dishes. I used to have a full set of glasses, cups, plates, etc. Now I have plates and mason jars.

6. And in the really practical category- grocery store gift cards. If you really want to give me a gift that will last all season, give me groceries.

The Less than Practical List

2. How can I justify buying myself
this bed when I need tires?

3. Grimm's Fairy Tales. Every day when I work at that store I can't mention I see this beautiful leather bound edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales. Its only $35 full price. If I don't get it for Christmas, I'm getting for myself for my birthday, in approximately 30 days.

4. And because I am a single woman, I must add the obvious last request.

I'm really not such a complicated person to shop for. I like insanely practical gifts. And cash. I am going to Europe in just 7 days. Cash is the best gift EVER right now.

    I don't think you used to love shoes until you decided to become someone from Sex and the City. Grow up! Be yourself!
